Geur van India 2

2Anil Ramdas citeert E.M. Forster, die Kipling citeert: `East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet'. Het eind van dit gedicht is echter:

`But there is neither east nor west, border nor breed nor birth

when two strong men stand face to face

though they come from the end of earth'.
